Title: A 'New' Text of the Martyrdom of Polycarp
Author(s): DEHANDSCHUTTER, B.

Volume: 66 Issue: 4 Date: December 1990
In 1979 we were able to publish a new edition of the Martyrdom of Polycarp. It was mainly based on the Greek manuscripts known and available since the nineteenth century. The same manuscripts were used in editions such as the well-known 'Bihlmeyer', the edition of the Acts of the Christian Martyrs by H. Musurillo, and even the recent edition of A.P. Orban. Nevertheless an existing manuscript of the Martyrdom of Polycarp had been overlooked.
